Chicago Pre-Construction Condo: Waterview Tower
For the first time in the United States, the Shangri Hotel flag will fly from a high rise building. Expected to be completed in 2009, this 90 story tower will house around two hundred condo hotel units as well as two hundred thirty-three residential condo units. Located on the corner of West Wacker Drive and Clark Street, along the Chicago River, this is one of the most luxurious condo hotels currently under construction.
Designed by architect Thomas Hoepf of the design firm Teng and Associates, the Waterview Tower is set to be the fifth tallest building in Chicago. With a firm reputation of providing excellent service and luxury rooms, Shangri-La Hotel Condos brings their high standard of quality, architectural beauty and comfortable living to this building project.
The Waterview Tower will utilize land that had previously been an empty parking lot for more than thirty years. Once this space is transformed, a stunning glass and steel tower will climb some 1,047 feet into the Chicago sky. This elevation will make for some fantastic views on the inset glass balconies built into each condo unit. City scapes, peaceful green parks and calming blue water can all be seen from the Waterview Tower condos.
Current plans call for floors 12 to 27 to house the 200 hotel condo units. After that, floors 30 to 88 of the building will be filled with 233 residential condo units. One of the unique options of the hotel condo suites is that they are available for purchase, which isn't often the case with other hotel condominiums.
Floor plans are varied and come in a wide range of styles and prices. One bedroom, one bath studio apartments can be purchased from $500,000 and on up. The one bedroom, one bath condo units start with a price of $1,035,000. For the two bedroom condo homes, the price range starts at $1.3 million.
All of the living units at the Chicago Waterview Tower come with luxury design details and furnishings. The bay windows reach from floor to ceiling and allow plenty of natural light to enter the rooms. Again, the views are spectacular. The ceilings themselves range in height from nine to eleven feet, creating an open feeling. Radiant heat warms the hardwood floors and the condo doors are solid wood, not just core, with nickel hardware for both safety and beauty. Nearly all of the condos have private recessed glass terraces and balconies.
For the budding chef in the family, the kitchens are spacious and come with wood cabinets, granite counter tops and restaurant quality stainless steel appliances. The master baths have marble tile and trim, walk in showers and large soaker tubs.
The Waterview Tower pampers its guests and residents with many amenities. The lobby is attended by a doorperson 24 hours every day. There is also 24 hour butler service, room service and concierge service. The building has a business center for your work needs, a ballroom for formal occasions and offers fine dining at the two in house restaurants, Sunset Promenade and Wintergarden Lounge.
The Chi Spa will relax and rejuvenate guests and residents. With over seven different suites, you can have almost every aspect of your body attended to, from the foot fitness center to the massage center. For a total work out, the Waterview has a 6,000 square foot exercise facility that is fully equipped. The health experience is rounded out with an indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam room plus yoga instruction. You would be hard pressed to find half of these services at another hotel condo.
If you want to explore beyond the Tower, then some of Chicago's best restaurants and shops are only minutes away. Dine out, browse at the fashion outlets and boutiques, grab some coffee at a cafe or take in the theater district or art galleries. There are endless opportunities for cultural and educational experiences nearby. And the Loop and other public transportation is within easy access for travel across the city without having to bother with driving and finding parking spaces. Plus, the Tower’s location on the Chicago River provides residents and guests with the chance to enjoy some of the many activities and events along the waterway.
The Shangri-La Waterview Tower will provide the ultimate luxury hotel experience every day, all in a place you can call home.
